Apple Today Samsung AV product lead Chris Moseley had comments about Apple's rumored entrance into the television marketplace that sound eerily similar to that which Palm CEO Ed Colligan's said a few years back about how Apple's ability to simply walk into this market and figure it out like they had managed to do after years of research.

Thom, perhaps you are ignoring the level of interactivity that can be achieved by integrating TV + iDevice (a powerful pocket computer now) + Internet + software from apps stores + contents store, all under a simple interface. You should have some installed base also but guess what, all this are actually already available to Apple.

- Buy content via Internet while you check emails or search for something more on a big screen;
- Talk to friends with image;
- Share music selections;
- Post things on Facebook (argh!);
- Program the movies and shows your want to see in advance;
- A lot more.

I know all these things can be done on your computer + television, but for most people, an integrated system with an intuitive touch controller and a big screen is a killer solution for their needs of communication and entertainment.
